A Hymn in response to the bickering US Presidential Campaign.

What me?
Change the world? No, change me first!
Give us eyes to see
Prayer in action calls us forth
To be more like Thee.
 
Stop the War? No, calm me first!
Give us ears to hear
Inner voices that seek peace
Bringing that Day near.
 
Stop the Hate? No, start with me!
Give us hands that share
All the gifts You give to us
Let us not despair.
 
Christ in us! How can that be?
Godhead humbled, see
Emptied, Jesus on a Cross
Just to set us free?
 
Glory to the Father, Son,
Holy Spirit, be
Ever present in our lives
Change us round to see.
